T. Eric Bakutis is an author and game designer living in Maryland. He is happily married and shares his house with a vicious, predatory cat and a sad-faced, cowardly dog.

In his day job, he's a professional videogame designer and has shipped at least one title you've heard of. He's also fascinated with the progress of virtual reality and a regular citizen in the metaverse offered by VRChat, where he hosts a weekly social and feeds stray anime girls. In his limited spare time, Eric hikes with his lovely wife and cowardly dog, plays any videogames he can get his hands on, and participates in local events like the Baltimore Science Fiction Society Writer's Circle.

His short fiction has been published in a number of small markets and his first fantasy novel. His first fantasy trilogy, Tales of the Five Provinces, is now available, and he currently publishes a new section in his free online cyberpunk police procedural every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. His first science fiction novel, Supremacy's Shadow, is due out in February 2018.
